Doc Text:
The rsyslog bug fix update for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 5.5, which is advisory RHBA-2010:0213, contained an enhancement that increased the number of clients that rsyslog was able to handle. However, an issue with the build tool chain resulted in the source code patch failing to apply, with the results that large numbers of clients could have caused rsyslogd to crash due to a segmentation fault. The patch has been successfully applied with this update, and rsyslogd is now able to handle a large number of clients without crashing.
